Chris Evans—AKA Captain America, AKA the best Chris (don’t @ me)—is known for being funny, and silly, and outspoken on social media.
His Twitter feed is full of adorable dog pics…

And Cardi B endorsements…

And some fairly savage Trump (Jr. & Sr.) clap backs:

Either you STILL don’t understand that weather is not climate despite literally everyone explaining it to you every time you tweet this ignorance, or you just don’t care, and you’re deliberately misleading your base.— Chris Evans (@ChrisEvans) February 11, 2019
Which is it? https://t.co/35Rmeot0F9
So his recent response to a story ET Canada tweeted of him—complete with an arguably rough photograph as the thumbnail—is honestly fully on brand.
“This is clearly an act of aggression,” wrote Evans. “There are literally hundreds of photos to choose from. What did I ever do to you, Canada?”
Evans confessed to Seth Meyers on Late Night that his mustache—which he grew out for a Broadway role in 2018—isn’t even a look he likes.
Fans on Twitter died at Evans’ reaction.
This is rude.

The attention the tweet received prompted ET Canada to request a selfie from Evans so that they could swap the thumb out:
Any chance you can send us a selfie to swap into the gallery? ???? The Broadway ‘stache is all Getty is providing for recent pics. We are hoping this gallery entry will redeem us https://t.co/HkAj0CcOVw

And then Netflix Canada jumped in to apologize “on behalf of all Canadians,” then jumpstarted a thread of hot Chris Evans pics:
On behalf of all Canadians, here is a thread of hot Chris Evans photos. Consider this our big heartfelt (and kind of@selfish) “SORRY”

We must protect this national treasure at all costs.
